Happy New Year 2012 to All!

Hard to believe that the year of the Mayan curse is finally upon us. You know, the year where the Mayan Calendar runs out on 12/21/2012 so we all assume its the end of the world. First thing I want to know is how did we actually arrive at that date considering the "calendar" has changed many times over the last 5000-6000 years. Is 12/21/2012 really the right date? And maybe the Mayans were simply predicting (optimistically) the end of their own civilization, which unfortunately ended way before the year 2012. I don't know what the real story is but we'll get to watch what happens up close this year and we'll all (hopefully) breath a collective sigh of relief when yet another doomsday story fizzles out. Stay tuned!!

Musical Soundtrack App for your Phone

Okay on to music news. I came upon this cell phone app that is a "soundtracking" app, which means it identifies and captures (or retrieves) song samples from your environment and allows you to pass them among your family/friends. Kind of like posting Facebook status (happy, sad, whatever) but with a musical note added to it. Sounds pretty neat to me (being musical and all :)). For more info check it out the full article here Soundtracking App for Cellphones .

That's all for today 2012 I'm going to try and post 3-4 times/week and spotlight some of my favorite new (and old) songs. You know the kind of songs that are so good they give you the chills when you hear them :) Have a great day and we'll talk soon!
